If Rand Paul had to choose, who would be a safer VP Choice, Cruz or Palin?

If Rand Paul only had these two choices for his Vice Presidential Candidate, who would be better?

Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin?

My personal preference would be Judge Napolitano, however, I'm curious what you guys think ONLY between Palin or Cruz.

I absolutely think that he will be forced to make that Reagan decision to include a "bush" or lose.

I think that "bush" is Cruz. Neocon extraordinaire.

Palin seems like the safer option.

Yell at me all you want. I'm curious to see where DP stands on this. Palin was almost one of us right before McScum chose her to be VP candidate.

Let er' rip!

Mickey Mouse?

Mickey would give him at least as much credibility as either of those two clowns. Maybe even more.

This Time I Would Support Mickey Mouse...For President!

It

would never be either. They would choose someone super moderate to placate voters.

I think the safest for him would be..

Ron Paul. That way his biggest enemies would fear the VP more than the President.

Poop Soup and a Turd Sandwich.

I'll prefer Judge Napolitano, thanks.

Ted Cruz was born in Calgary,

Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada. He is not a natural born citizen, therefore it would be illegal for him to be Vice President.

Simply for that reason alone I would need to pick Palin over Cruz if they were the only options.

Alternatively, I would still prefer Ron Paul over Rand and Judge Andrew Napolitano for VP or even POTUS.

...

True statement...

but when conversing, make sure that you bring up the fact that his father was not born here, and that his father did not come to America to live until decades after Ted was born:

Rafael Cruz was born in 1939 in Matanzas, Cuba, moved to Canada and became a Canadian citizen while working there. It was in Calgary, Alberta, Canada that Ted was born December 22, 1970, prior to Rafael coming to America in 2005. Ted is not a natural-born U.S. citizen.

Refer to the works of Vattel. Also toward the bottom are some interesting amendment proposals:

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

I'd like to think that...

…Rand would select a prominent libertarian as a running mate.

Here's my choice (check out the 'Political Views' section): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janice_Rogers_Brown

Paul Craig Roberts

My vote is for Paul Craig Roberts in light of his piece denouncing Rand Paul's position on Russian military involvement in Crimea. PCR imho would keep a President Rand Paul in line and honest.

Judge Nap to the Supreme Court and Pappy Ron Paul as Treasury Secretary.

Paul Craig Roberts

I should like to add: No CFR, Trilateral, Bilderberg candidates in the VP role. We should like to avoid another JFK - LBJ fiasco.

Neither Cruz nor Palin

Cruz was born in Canada so he is not eligible under the Constitution. Palin lacks the intelligence necessary to be elected to any public office. My choice would be either Judge Napolitano, Congressman Amash or Congressman Massie.

I can't vote for any ticket that has Cruz on it

he is not eligible for either president or vice president. Pretty much says it all

Ditto for Rubio and Jindal

Cruz is too close to the Big

Cruz is too close to the Big Banking cartels via his wife.

Jim Demint is my choice. We

Jim Demint is my choice. We need Cruz in the Senate to try to keep the gavel out of Dingy Harry's filthy paws.

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

I like Demint too

Just need to pull CA back into the union and why I put Issa first pick. But I like Demint too.

Of course you like

Issa.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Yep

He's Arab is why.

Palin

Vice Presidents don't do that much. I fear her foreign policy but the fact she doesn't seem to be in McCain's camp anymore is a good thing. She would comfort the transforming Neocons and Ted Cruz needs to stay away from foreign policy where he lacks a Ron Paul view also...He need him in the Senate to push issues that may take years like abolish the IRS FED AND Dept of Education..Neither one is my first choice. Judge Napolitano is my first choice.

1st Off...

I wouldn't consider Cruz a NeoCon... not by a long shot. I think he's probably the 4th Best Potential Presidential Candidate we've in 60 yrs, right behind Ron, Rand, and Goldwater.

However, I think the mass appeal of Sarah Palin would be a bigger benefit than Cruz... The question is: which VP candidate would bring in more votes that Paul isn't already going to get. I think Palin is the clear choice.

SENATOR DERRICK GRAYSON (R-GA)!

When he wins this year. The "new" Republican Party!

It would make the election a cakewalk.

AND . . . it makes Rand assassination-proof!

A win-win!

Yeah

I have some doubts about Rand Paul in how he differs from his father, but if Grayson was his VP I'm pretty sure I'd vote for him.

Dave Mustaine.

Dave Mustaine.

Then he can fill Stadiums.

I find myself torn...

There is some that Rand says that I love, and there is some that he says where it sounds like more of the same. He's obviously a smart guy, so I wonder if he is just trying to play his cards right so that he will be supported enough to get the position of president... and then hopefully getting rid of all this B.S. that we've all been wanting them to. I sure hope that is the case, because I can't see him being to far off from what his father was. And his father was around 98% right on every issue.

Barry Goldwater

There are only two reason to pick a VP.
1) You need to buy votes or cover a weakness (same thing).
2) You are grooming them for President.

Cruz will not buy much for Rand - maybe toughness and a latino angle, but that is not much.

Don't jump the gun, wait and see what he needs. If he is a shoo-in then the challenge is finding Barry Goldwater.

I will answer this question using boolean logic.

NO!

Also sorry to sound like a broken record but can anyone report personally what happened at the county conventions in Iowa?

Darrel Issa

Darrel Issa would amke a great running mate for Rand.

Dept of Justice

He would do better at cleaning out the Dept of Justice..It has dried blood on it from the Kennedy presidency.

Why not

what else does a good VP do?

I think he is solid on health care reform

But he is still a neoconservative tried and true unfortunately.

Seems to be

Being the nomination comes from the GOP and not the general public.. Issa would be GOOD for CA and being an Arab neocon.. well.. give folks something to think about. And yeah, Darrel has money too. So very Republican.
